Not even a sharknado will stop Google's conquest of the undersea internet


How's this for Shark Week? At a recent event, one of Google's product managers revealed just how far the outfit goes to protect its subaquatic infrastructure. Word is that Mountain View's shiny new internet pipeline crossing the Pacific is going to need a Kevlar cover to keep it safe from the jaws of your favorite Great White.
